A mother and daughter were arrested after they allegedly bit, spit and scratched several people, including a club bouncer and a Delray Beach police officer early Sunday, according to an arrest report.
Molly Ann Hanrahan, of Boca Raton, and her mother Ann Harvey, of Delray Beach, were being escorted out of Honey Delray at 16 E. Atlantic Avenue when the women became “belligerent,” the report said. Hanrahan, 25, allegedly took a swing at a bouncer and, when she missed, spit at him twice and scratched his face, drawing blood.
When the club manager came over to assist, he was slapped then bitten on the left arm by Harvey, the report said. The bite left teeth imprints on the man’s arm.
After being taken into custody, Hanrahan twice slipped out of her handcuffs, the report said. As Hanrahan was being placed in the back seat of a patrol car, she allegedly spit at an officer’s face, the report said.
Hanrahan is facing charges of battery on an officer, battery and resisting arrest without violence Hanrahan was released from the Palm Beach County Jail Sunday after posting a $3,000 bond.
Harvey, 62, is facing a charge of aggravated battery causing bodily harm or disability and remains in jail
in lieu of $3,000 bail.
Harvey’s elderly mother was in court Monday morning asking Judge Caroline Shepherd to release her daughter because Harvey serves as her caretaker.
Shepherd responded by asking if Harvey has an alcohol problem.
“She had an alcohol problem in the past,” Harvey’s mother replied.
“Maybe at 3 o’clock in the morning [Sunday] night too?” Shepherd asked rhetorically.
